At times I have such hard time getting my soon to be 3 yr old to listen to me it is a 'run & chase me along with hiding game sometimes or that he ends up just does what he wants even though he knows he's not supposed to or if he is supposed to do something like 'get ready for bed' I try to make it fun going we get to play in the tub & youcan swim for a bit in the tubby then we read the animal story or any book you want. He also developed his grandma's habbits of plugging his ears going huh I can't hear you or he will say stop talking.

I try to simple redirect he will be back there as in running to get a 'giggle out of him' and so I used to be able to pick him up as in laid back style but he outgrown that part he wiggles so much I so afraid I will drop him on his back or noggin or he will hit his head on something sharp like the brick wall.

Then I have used to be able to hold him upside down to prevent him from 'head butting or head banging into my face but now he's big enough to touch the ground so he wheelbarrows himself down .

If I try to get him to come it's a sit down & sulk or I have to have no choice but to carry him because I don't want to drag him & so many times I have no idea where patience goes when I"m dealing with this and I want to have good patience but it's really frustrating because of the 'actions I have done before are now for too young ones.
